Hi Latifah! I was a student in your OC clam shell quilt class a few weeks ago. I had already planned to do the Rocket 88 quilt for my sister (who wanted a quilt using infinity symbols) . This was perfect! Only after I came home from your class did I realize you created the pattern! I cannot attend your class on Aug 9 Is there another class you are teaching on how to create this? Or at least a class or video on the bias technique would be so helpful! — Karen.

[…] to make a Target Practice Block, Half Rectangle Triangles and more? Intrigued? Latifa has some really good tutorials and free patterns on her site. It’s also fun to just scroll through even the first page of her site to look at […]

Your work is beautiful. I especially love the green and gray one. I have quilted for a long time and I am really getting into these new modern looks.

would love to know more about the Guild and how to join and what is required. I have not been a quilt maker, except little ones now and then but have sewed for so many years. I have done costumes mainly for a now grown dancer daughter. How do I get more info?

Hi Latifa, I am Rosanna’s mother. I met you in the garment district when I was visiting LA. I am so impressed at how much you have accomplished in the relatively short time that you have been making quilts. Keep up the good work. I look forward to seeing future projects. Sincerely, Joy
